Just spent a long weekend hiking the coulees of Alberta's Badlands (stay tuned for upcoming article) and loving the fact that even though it's still snowing off and on, the air is warm! Just keep your eyes peeled for ticks -- we had a hitchhiker come home with us last week. 'Tis the season!
Here's the latest article from the Hiking & Backpacking site at BellaOnline.com.
